PHOTOS: Secrets About Queen Elizabeth And Her Fancy Ensembles

We’ve always wondered what Queen Elizabeth is like away from the cameras, how she chooses her outfits, and if there are any secrets to dressing the style icon. Well, now we know!

Dressmaker Stewart Parvin, who revealed last month that Liz has an assistant break in her shoes, tells People this week that the Queen is an incredibly delightful client:

“She is possibly the most charming woman you could ever meet, and she has this amazing ability to put you at ease.”

Milliner Rachel Trevor-Morgan adds that Liz is quite the talker:

“She can be very chatty at fittings. I’m only there for a very brief amount of time, but she’s certainly friendly. She’s not at all scary.”

Parvin also explained that weights are added to the hems of skirts and dresses to avoid wardrobe malfunctions (something these ladies apparently haven’t heard of) and why she wears a lot of coats:

“Everything is beautifully fitted, and we make sure it won’t crease.¬†She does feel the cold, which is why she tends to wear a coat. At the end of the day, the Queen is nothing but practical.”
